brothers. the extramarital affair/political drama that enveloped former cia director david petraeus gets more extraordinary by the minute. this morning washington woke up to the news that the top commander of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan, general john allen, has also been investigated by the fbi after having exchange, according to a senior defense official, possibly thousands of potentially inappropriate e-mails with jill kelley, the 37-year-old social liaison at the heart of the scandal that led to general petraeus' resignation. house homeland security committee chair peter king had another term to describe the unfolding drama. >> it's really a great tragedy. general petraeus, one of our most distinguished generals and general allen, considered a super star in the military, did an outstanding job in afghanistan, was going to go to nato, it's just tragic. you're right, this has the elements in so ways of a hollywood movie or trashy novel. >> a brief primer on the characters until so-called trashy novel. allen who is married became ensnared in the investigation because of his e-mai
kelway is live for us. doug? >> reporter: former cia director david petraeus voluntarily agreed to testify before house and senate intelligence committees. fox has learned he will speak off site on friday to the senate intelligence committee about the libya report. presumably that it means his testimony will be closed and not open to the public. recall that director petraeus briefed intelligence committees on september 14th, three days after the benghazi attack and said that the attack was akin to a flashmob that is explanation moments ago chairman of the house homeland security committee peter king suggested may have been dishonest. >> i was just talking to frank lobioni on the intelligence committee with me, documents we see, intelligence prior to general petraeus coming in, it is impossible to believe that he thought he was giving honest testimony. >> reporter: while not going that far other members of the intelligence committees want answers from petraeus. >> does make you wonder because the cia has now reported they knew pretty much from the beginning this was an al qaeda-inspired terrorist

, that david petraeus signed off on, the director of cia wrote the assessment, that's what she was doing. there are people in the white house, particularly the president, but a lot of support staff feel as if susan rice has gotten a raw deal on this. that she has been a political punching bag, if you will, over the last month and a half because of the presidential campaign, because of other things. so, this point when mccain and graham did their thing, that's why the president felt he needed to stand up for his u.n. ambassador. there's -- obviously he was giving off an indication he's willing to have a confirmation fight if they want to have one. but there's more to this, chris. there's more to this. this goes back to mccain and obama, they never -- they never had a warm relationship after the 2008 election. mccain, i think, has been tougher on the president than in the reverse. the president has sort of not taken the bait when mccain has hit him and hit him pretty hard. and i think this was an indication the president is ready to sort of fight back when it comes to mccain. this is not a
called david petraeus. as a matter of fact, i had had an appointment with him at 3:00 that afternoon. that was canceled and so then when these questions came up i obviously took action myself to try to find out and then informed my vice-chairman and i talked to the director twice. this is very hard stuff. >> are you going to investigate why the fbi didn't notify you before? >> yes, absolutely. this is something that could have had an effect on national security. i think we should have been told. there is a way to do it and that is just to inform the chair and the vice-chairman of both committees to -- this has happened before not with precise same things but none of the four of us have ever breached that confidentiality. >> let me ask you, you raise the hearings, and we are going to get into that in a moment but petraeus was supposed to testify in a closed hearing your committee will hold on thursday about the attack on benghazi. now because petraeus has stepped down his deputy now acting directory placement mike morrell is going to testify in his place. one are you going to insist o

, led to paula broadwell who led to david petraeus and the relationship that was then uncovered. how did general allen get into this mix? >> your question has the answer in it. basically, jill kelley complained she was getting harassing e-mails. the fbi eventually found who was sending the e-mails, but that caused them to look at both the e-mails that jill kelley was receiving and the ones that paula broadwell was sending. in the midst of looking at the e-mails jill kelley was receiving here are all these messages from general allen. so, you know, they -- the obviously concluded there was no crime in the e-mail exchanges he had with her, but they felt it should be referred to the defense department as a personnel matter, which is the same phrase they used when they told the director of national intelligence, general clapper, about what petraeus was doing. no crime in that what turned out to be an adulterous relationship, but the boss should know. >> the other thing that happened overnight we were watching real time as ten fbi agents arrived in charlotte at the home of paula broadwell and
david petraeus' career as c.i.a. director. today, he said he's seen no evidence that national security was compromised. >> obviously, there's an ongoing investigation. i don't want to comment on the specifics of the investigation. the f.b.i. has its own protocols in terms of how they proceed. we are safer because of the work that dave petraeus has done. and my main hope right now is-- is that he and his family are able to move on and that this ends up being a single side note on what has otherwise been an extraordinary career. >> reporter: the president was pressed on whether he should have been informed sooner of the f.b.i.'s investigation. he said he was withholding judgment. >> i think you're going to have to talk to the f.b.i. in terms of what their general protocols are when it comes to what started off as a potential criminal investigation. and one of the challenges here is-- is that we're not supposed to meddle in, you know, criminal investigations. and tt's been our practice. and so my expectation is-- is that they followed protocols that they already established. what i'll say
